    I've done many orders with Motobins over the years. I generally just do it all online, they send an email receipt within the hour. I have had to call them when I had a mixup (my end) or rush order, that gets a bit $$ to talk over the pond.

    Lower prices more than make up for the higher shipping is what I have found.

    All our parts come from Europe and parts sold by USA sources include cost of freight from Europe, too. No difference, really.

    I suggest ordering a spare return spring at the same time. Eventually you'll need it and having a spare handy to replace and go is nice; plus you won't have to pay additional shipping to get it.

    I love my Surefoot stand.

    Just order from Motobins like you would any other online vendor. If you call them, remember that the UK is typically five hours ahead of Eastern. You will get pricing ex. VAT.

    I have a Surefoot on mt 1994 R100RT. Nice stout functional design, but not as pretty as something like a Brown. It will take you less than five minutes to fit!

    Here's my installation. Note I have retained the original sidestand. Comes in handy from time to time to use both, e.g. on soft ground etc.

    Keeping the original stand is also helpful for when that Surefoot spring breaks.....DAMHIK!
